Two new species of decapod crustaceans from the Albian of the Paris Basin

Two new species of decapod crustaceans, Glyphea franzini n. sp. (Glypheidae), and Callianassa agae n. sp. (Callianassidae), from the Albian Gault facies of the Paris Basin, are described herein. These two species were previously described and figured by Breton (2010) in the CD-Rom of a popularization collective book entitled Stratotype Albien. Nevertheless, in respect to the article 8.6 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature concerning the works produced after 1999 by a method that does not employ printing on paper, these two names are not available. Indeed, the CD-Rom does not contain a statement that copies have been deposited at least in five major publicly accessible libraries which should be identified by name in the work itself.
